Cool Buck comes from the classic line of slot machines which was created by Microgaming. These games will offer you the classic symbols that you expect, but they will also have a special theme, one that influences only the background image and the top paying symbol. It’s the case here as well, in Cool Buck, a game that appears to be inspired by the 1 dollar bill. That’s why in the background you will notice a rolled up dollar bill which has been turned into a character, and why the main symbol is a Dollar Sign, capable of paying up to $30,000. The game has 3 reels with 5 lines.
Betting & Jackpots
1 to 5 lines are active each round where the reels spin. You’re the one that decides how many will be used, and this would typically be done based on the amount of bet you can afford to use. It’s better to modify the coin value, getting it closer to $0.25 than to its maximum possible value of $5, if you want to save a buck. The use of all five paylines can bring much better top jackpots if you happen to land the right combination. The smallest bet possible is at $0.25, while the biggest one is at $25.
How much you win in this game will depend on the payline on which the three matching symbols land. This is true only for the top jackpot, the other combinations paying a fixed number of coins. The rewards get better, the higher you get with the payline number. That’s why you win only 1,000 coins if you land three Dollar Signs on the 1st line, but 2,000 on the 2nd, 3,000 on the 3rd, 4,000 on the 4th and 6,000 coins on the 5th reel. The value of that last prize can reach $30,000.
As many games do when they offer this kind of layout and gameplay, a single symbol gets an extra role, and it will be that of the wild. It will also be attributed to the Dollar Sign icon, the same one that can give you the jackpot of Cool Buck.
Whenever one or two wild symbols are on a payline, and the rest of the symbols are regular ones and match, they will help form a combination by substituting for the ones that are missing.
The design is heavy on the green color, as it should be for a game which is inspired by the mighty buck. You get a dollar themed background image, with a Cool Buck character placed next to the logo, and with coins and bills at its feet. The paytable is on the right side, and for the most part the symbols on it are going to be classic ones, consisting of cherries, the three Bar icons and a blue 7.
Cool Buck has a unique theme, but I can’t say the same about its gameplay. The features and payouts/betting system are identical to what you will find in many other games.
